OSBM Administered Grants

OSBM administers Directed Grants as appropriated by the North Carolina General Assembly. If your organization received a grant administered by OSBM, please refer to this page for updated information.

OSBM will contact recipients of Directed Grants as directed by state appropriations. If you believe your organization was appropriated an OSBM-managed grant and you have not heard from our agency, please contact NCGrants@osbm.nc.gov.

    • Sworn statement that your organization does not have overdue tax debts (see G.S. 143C-6-23.(b)).
